Gordon Ramsay may be one of the most unreserved and outspoken celebrity chefs out there but apart from his ability to rack up numerous Michelin stars and shout scurrilous remarks at reality cooking show contestants, he's always been an active person. He's completed a number of marathons and few people might not know that as a teenager he wanted to be a professional football player but sadly a bad knee injury ended this dream. 

Ramsay, who's been a prolific TV personality in the last 10 years, knows that it's part of his job to taste a LOT of food. And now at 51 years old, the chef is more aware than ever that health problems could potentially rob him of the chance to see his own kids grow up. Which is why he's been on a mission to get super healthy and fit, resulting in a weight-loss of 50 pounds - the equivalent of 22.6kg!
